All reviews guided tour stone store the river new zealand nz history oldest stone the ground floor dressed in period costume old building step back in time interesting history mission station pear tree early settlers for sale national trust beautiful location
fantastic walk to old power house along the river and past many water falls. Park your car in the well marked area and visit the cottage café or other on the waters edge. Honey café is excellent and great home cooked style food.
While we were in KeriKeri of course we had to make a pit stop at the famous Stone store! The Carpark has toilet facilities, there’s a cafe and a walk (which we didn’t get a chance to explore). The store faces a lagoon which is...More

We learned about the stories about the trade in history of new zealand, expected a lot from this Stone Store yet was only small museum part which costed 8 dollar to get in. I guess it would be nicet to learn a lot more about...More
The Stone Store is an old historic building just out of Kerikeri and is situated in the most beautiful setting. Inside is a tourist shop but it's really well done and sells lots of historical things. The staff even dress in fashion of the day....More

The Stone Store and Kemp House are wonderful to visit. The store is in a historic stone building and sells interesting New Zealand themed merchandise such as handmade soaps, cards, china, and period hardware and tools. The person helping us in the store was a...More

I would give at least an hour to 1.5 hours at our site. The Mission Station is a large site with a garden of national significance, orchard, lovely river setting. Then of course the two oldest buildings in New Zealand - The Stone Store which has an interactive museum and large range of merchandise. Also Kemp House which is available by tour only with one of our knowledgeable guides and we recommend 30 minutes in the house. Tour cost is $10 for both museum and house.
